Pied-billed Grebes

Happily sunning in the marshy waters along Murrell’s Inlet, I found three Pied-billed Grebes.

I never did get a decent shot of all three in one frame, but did of two.

A common Grebe throughout North America, these small birds are excellent divers.  Although this late afternoon, they never once dived.  They just floated around, enjoying the warm sunshine.

And I enjoyed the way the sun was lighting the waters around them.

That being said, now you know why I posted so many photos of them.  It was hard enough narrowing down to just these few.

A little preening…..giving delightful water circles.

It was definitely a fun time with these little cuties!
